    Re: Tormach sales

    TORMACH just posted an "End of summer, $1000 worth of FREE upgrades" if you purchase a 15L Slant Pro.

    But, I still think $15,000 is asking waaayy too much for a 2 Horsepower lathe. :(

    It actually looks ok for $3000. Everything seems to be there.
    The stains just look like old coolant grunge, easily cleaned-up.

    Oh, cool.
    Thanks for the replies.
    It's in the Tormach PC Tower, so it should be an easy fix.
